Shetland English- a treat for youse lot

I was looking at the voices website for another reason, and listened to the Shetland section on a whim. Shetland accents are BRILLIANT, I'm not quite sure if I'm listening to English or Swedish at times, but I can understand about 80% of it on the first listen. How about you?
